351c rebuild
#1
I rebuilt the 351c in my shop and added a few upgrades. I think it came out beautifully. Thought I would share this picture. It's now back in the Mach and sounds great. Sorry I couldn't get it to attach to the post, but here's the link.

Thank you for the kind comments. Didn't do anything special, however, they are painted with a brush. I know..sounds weird, but I use Eastwood ceramic engine paint. It flows so well, that you can do that on something like the crinkle black finish on cast aluminum valve covers and get away with it. Can't see any brush marks. I used a small artists brush to paint the area between the fins and around the lettering. Then I just used a sanding block with 80 or 100 grit to remove the excess paint and bring out the high spots. I used an HVLP gun on the engine, but didn't know how easy it would be to sand it off again....that's why the brush. It really didn't take very long.

I'm very interested in your rebuild...could you share more details with me?  I also have a 351c 4bbl and want to do a complete rebuild.  So anything you can share would be very much appreciated and you can PM me any info.
